Can anyone describe how to do these tiers? And how to keep the cakes from sliding off? I have an upcoming Tea Party cake. This is the look they want, except bottom layer is table, next layer tea pot, next layer sugar cube holder, top layer tea cup and saucer.

I'm not really sure how to do this. I will build the structure myself (actually it will be the hubby).

Thanks so much for your help.

foam wedges -- in this case covered in black so less noticeable

There are also tubing that is made out of pvc that Ive seen on Cal Java Internationals website. Specifically designed to make this type of cake.

Doug - I love your diagram, as I usually quietly do. But in this case, I notice the absence of dowels for the individual tiers. How do those fit in?

I was too lazy to draw them?

Leah_s would shoot me for not saying just use SPS? (foam on that plate and then foam attached to cake board under tier)

Naaah, I'm gonna approve dowels for that one.

And the cakes will be ok?? No sliding? Should I "glue" them to the board somehow?

I found this cake while I was looking at pinkcakebox .com pictures. She calls it Topsy Turvy. But I searched Tiered Topsy Turvy.
